It's still in Beta, and I know they're after feedback (green banner at the top for reporting things)
This is the email that came with it:
Nobody likes major changes, and so major redesigns never go unnoticed. With the announcement of the open beta of the shiny new Smashing Magazine last week, we were literally overwhelmed with feedback, ranging all the way from surprise and delight to shock, concerns and skepticism.
We're not stubborn though. We've been listening to the concerns, bugs and issues raised, and we'll be working to improve the overall experience over the next weeks and months. Not everything is set in stone already, and I am eternally grateful for your fantastic feedback so far, and your kind support in our little journey. We'll be sure to keep you informed of the next steps, and we'll even have a couple of articles coming up to explain what exactly is happening behind the scenes!
Never stop learning, and stay smashing!
